At Solent Sky

At Solent Sky

You seem to have concentrated on shapes in the painting Derek. I like the sense of depth in the sketch. It hold my attention.

Love the shapes. I am also intrigued by the lady's chin ...

Thanks John and Gudrun, the shapes were the catalyst for this work. The lady's chin is on a portrait, on the wall behind I did of my wife , which she hates and I love.

Hang on Studio Wall

25 x 39cms on paper. Based on my Urban Sketching couple of weeks back. Felt in another world - I hear you say, what's new? so bereft of subjects did this. Wanted to keep the sky hazy and the glazing a bit fazed, no sure if it's worked. Maybe I should offer it to the Great British Painting Challenge.

Eleventyeight as my hashing pals called my new age recently, it's supposed to sound better. Trying to paint every day in acrylics using only expired credit/debit cards, and partially succeeding as they're only for me and not show these days.
